I’m also very interested in Amazon’s “support” of MathML. In my experience equations are not rendered as expected. This dove tails with accessibility as we have to pull down the files that contain MathML and revert to an image.

Best,

Hello,

 Just lurking here...
 Very interested in the Amazon discussions, as we are also having (hoping to have?) parallel discussions with the Amazon Canada team on the issue of accessibility in their digital books. Big focus on born accessible here in Canada at the moment and want to keep the momentum going. Happy to help with Amazon discussions/prodding.

Thanks,
Noah Genner
CEO, BookNet Canada

    Dear Karen,

    Thanks!

    Amazon Kindle format guidelines ask us publishers to provide EPUB files.
    Then we would like 2 things from Amazon:
    1) when we provide a fully accessible EPUB3, it would be good no accessibility feature is lost in the Kindle conversion. This is not the case today.
    2) as we have to provide EPUB file, it would be good if Amazon brings its support on "EPUB Accessibility 1.0" standards (built on WCAG plus EPUB stuff).

    Then we will all be in the same page for born accessible EPUBs...

        Hi Avneesh,

        I’ll be in Seattle next Monday and Tuesday for the W3C Workshop on Inclusive and Immersive Web.

        If I can be helpful to advance your agenda in any way with a F2F meeting with Amazon folks, let me know.

        Karen
